Sunday Selfie

Kitten Tonks may not often be able or willing to sit still, but sometimes she'll stop for half a second and strike a pose. This time around, Tonks didn't just strike a pose, though. She also snapped a selfie!

Tonks is quite proud of this selfie, especially considering she's a newbie to the whole thing. Sure, the tips of her ears got lost in the shuffle of snapping this selfie. But, there's always room for improvement.

Tonks is of course entering her selfie into the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.

Happy Sunday, friends!

Our Halloween Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of Today:

Today's Halloween tip relates to Halloween parties or other festivities of that nature. There are a number of potential dangers that such gatherings can pose. First, parties mean that guests are arriving, which means the door will be a busy place. When guests are arriving, keep your kitty or pup away from the door, such as by secluding them to a safe area away from the door, so that there is no chance of them escaping the house. Sometimes, it might also be best to keep your furbaby secluded to a safe area during the duration of Halloween or other similar party, for their continued safety. There will be extra foot traffic in the house when there are guests, which could potentially lead to your furbaby getting stepped on or otherwise injured.

In addition, there could be toxic foods present at a Halloween party, such as alcohol or chocolate. If your furbaby steals a taste of such foods, or if unwitting guests feed your kitty or pup treats of chocolate or other foods, there could be dangerous side effects. There is a variety of dangers to your cat or dog that can be present at festivities. Therefore, always do what you must to ensure your furbaby's safety during Halloween or other parties. Even if your kitty or pup is friendly and enjoys the company of others, there are still many dangers for a kitty or pup when gatherings are hosted at their home. If there is any doubt for their safety, or simply to prevent any accidental dangers, keep your kitty or pup confined to a safe area of the home during festive gatherings.

That is a fantastic selfie Tonks! Very cute drawing. Excellent tips too. I have always wanted to have a Halloween party and have yet to do so, but if I do, I will have the kitties in the bedrooms as I always do.
